This is the Washington Capitals practice facility. The rinks are really well maintained. Plenty of restrooms, seating, food. You can rent skates and skate during open times. The observation areas are great! I highly recommend. There's plenty of parking as well!

Went to a charity match between the FBI and Secret Service. Had lots of fun. I hear the concession stands were slow and the food was not the best. But we enjoyed the arena and the game.
